He Frowned ('Abasa)
42 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Stars (Al-Najm) before Destiny (Al-Qadr)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
۞ The Prophet frowned and turned away 1 Because there came to him the blind man (i.e. 'Abdullah bin Umm-Maktum, who came to the Prophet (Peace be upon him) while he was preaching to one or some of the Quraish chiefs). 2 But what would make you perceive, [O Muhammad], that perhaps he might be purified 3 Or be reminded and the remembrance would benefit him? 4 As for him who considers himself free from need (of you), 5 To him you attend; 6 Yet it is not thy concern if he grow not (in grace). 7 But he who comes to you running, 8 And is afraid (of Allah and His Punishment), 9 Of him wast thou unmindful. 10 These verses are a reminder 11 Let him who will, pay heed to it. 12 (It is) in Records held (greatly) in honour (Al-Lauh Al-Mahfuz). 13 exalted, purified, 14 In the hands of scribes 15 Noble and pious. 16 Perish Man! How unthankful he is! 17 Of what [stuff] has He created him? 18 Out of a drop of sperm He creates him, and thereupon determines his nature, 19 Then made his passage easy (at birth); 20 Then He causes him to die, then assigns to him a grave, 21 Then, when it is His Will, He will raise him up (again). 22 No! Man has not yet accomplished what He commanded him. 23 Let Man consider his nourishment. 24 For that We pour forth water in abundance, 25 then We split the earth in fissures 26 And We cause therein the grain to grow, 27 And Grapes and nutritious plants, 28 Olives and dates, 29 And gardens of dense shrubbery 30 and fruits and fodder 31 an enjoyment for you and your flocks. 32 Then, when there comes As-Sakhkhah (the Day of Resurrection's second blowing of Trumpet), 33 The day on which a man shall fly from his brother, 34 his mother and his father, 35 his wife and his sons: 36 every man that day shall have business to suffice him. 37 Some faces will shine, 38 laughing, and rejoicing, 39 but some faces will be covered with dust 40 Blackness will cover them. 41 Such will be the Kafarah (disbelievers in Allah, in His Oneness, and in His Messenger Muhammad (Peace be upon him), etc.), the Fajarah (wicked evil doers). 42
True are the words of God the Almighty.
End of Surah: He Frowned ('Abasa). Sent down in Mecca after The Stars (Al-Najm) before Destiny (Al-Qadr)
